China through the Lens of John Thomson: 1868-1872
I'm embarrassed to admit that I often forget about the Chester Beatty Library when looking at what's on in our city. When I do remember, I nearly always want to got there immediately to see their latest exhibition, and the one starting next week is no different. China through the Lens of John Thomson: 1868-1872 features the photos of China at a very early period of photography taken during several trips. The exhibition will feature 50 images from his collection along with Chinese clothing and accessories from the Chester Beatty's own collection. Sounds fascinating: I am so there. And even better, it runs until the end of February so plenty of time to see it.
